Birds on the peak
Alpine Choughes (Pyrrhocorax graculus) are sitting on the top of Mangart. They are the beggars of the Alps: you can find them anywhere if there is a good chance of getting some food from hikers.

August, 2007.
Mangart, Julian Alps, Italy/Slovenia

The birds are called Alpine Choughs (or Yellow-billed Choughs), lat. Pyrrhocorax graculus - as far as I know, at least.

Yeah, you're right, I've just looked up on the net. I'll correct the name.
